Service Dog Tutor

service dog tutor logoWhether your dog is a new addition to your household or already a beloved member of the family, we can work with you and your dog one-on-one with our highly effective Private Lessons. Your dog can become the best companion you’ve ever had. This is ideal for people who want the entire household involved in the training, so the dog responds to everyone. Seniors and people with limited mobility love in-home training.

Personal classes like these focus on your dog–unlike group classes where you are lucky to get 10 minutes of the trainer’s time in a one-hour class. If you don’t have the time to devote to the training or want to see quick changes in your dog’s behavior, we can train the dog for you in our Day Training Program. Best of all, both of these training scenarios occur at your home at a time that is convenient to your family.
